What Mods Will Be Most Common Amongst Tesla Model 3 Owners? (Poll)

September 17th, 2017 by  

Given that the Tesla Model 3 is by no means a cheap car, even if it isn’t anywhere near as expensive as the Model S or Model X (or comparable offerings from Mercedes, BMW, and Audi, for that matter), it should come as no surprise that some buyers will have very particular expectations about what they want…

With that in mind, a discussion on the Model 3 Owners Club forum that was brought to my attention recently seems worth highlighting here. It seems to have focused almost entirely around protective coatings and waxes, but it stimulated my interest in finding out what the Model 3 reservation holders here at CleanTechnica are planning as far as aftermarket mods. Fancy tires? Tinted windows? EVANNEX’s lighted T? Something less common and more involved than that?

To give people an idea of what I’m discussing, here’s the comment that kicked things off on the forum (via “Chris Lyttle”):

“I’ve been reading the last few days about people wanting to put clear bra’s on their M3’s to preserve the paint. This was something I really had not considered before, but then I’ve never had a brand new car and tended to just think the car was for getting from a to b. With the M3, I’m in a different place as this is the first time I’m getting a car that I feel excited about owning.

“So far I’ve been looking at getting a spare set of wheels for snow tire swapping and now am thinking about at least getting the front of the car covered with 3M or Xpel. What other things are people thinking of doing to ‘preserve’ their M3 once they have it in their hands? Are their upgrades or changes that anyone is thinking they would make to the car? I’m curious to know if people think the additions/changes are must do’s to keep the car in good condition for a long time as well.”

So, to rephrase my earlier question: What do Tesla Model 3 reservation holders have in mind as regards eventual upgrades or changes to their cars? Jump into the poll to chime in.
